Health Care in Danger Regional ASIA PACIFIC Meeting 2021


The 2nd Asia-Pacific Regional Health Care in Danger Meeting was held online on June 21-24, 2021. The event was co-organized by the ICRC and two leading medical universities in Pakistan, Khyber Medical University and Jinnah Sindh Medical University.

The regional meeting provided a platform for stakeholders across the region to share experiences, best practices and recommendations for the protection of health care. It delved into a range of fascinating themes and highlighted both the urgency of the issue and the necessity and promise of practical engagement.

The conference was both an example of the maturity of the ICRC`s multi-lateral collaboration on HCiD and of its potential to foster further engagement.
